NEW YORK, July 31 (UPI) -- Hollywood film icon Elizabeth Taylor is not on life support, contrary to tabloid reports stating she is, her representative told People magazine.
"Ms. Taylor is fine," Taylor's publicist, Dick Guttman said. "The rumors which began in England about her health are dramatic, overstated and untrue."
Media reports claimed the 76-year-old "Giant," "Cleopatra" and "National Velvet" star was fighting to remain conscious after a bout with pneumonia following congestive heart failure.
But Guttman told People magazine her recent trip to the hospital "was precautionary" and insisted she is set to return home soon.
"At present, she is surrounded by family, friends and fabulous jewels," Guttman said.
